I have extremely oily eyelids (I guess that's a thing?) and all my eye makeup fades after a few hours. I've had no solution for this for YEARS. I read the reviews and tried this. It works amazing! My eyeshadow doesn't budge. My eyeliner stays about 99% of the time. I've never used a shadow primer before, so I'm in awe of how awesome this product works. If anyone has a better recommendation, let me know. But for me, this primer is a miracle worker and I'm no longer self conscious and looking in the mirror all the time to fix my melting eye makeup. I love this product!
It works! It really really really works!
I'm always cynical when it comes to beauty product claims. I figured 24 hours was marketing speak for 6 hours if you're lucky. This product really lived up to it's name! I've been using it for over two weeks now and yup, 24 hours is right. My cream, gel, pencil, and powder liners have been put tho the test with the primer. They look just as good as when I applied them at 6 am as when I washed them off at midnight and there were a few times where I fall asleep before washing my face and yup, 24 hours later my eyeliner did not budge and I had to break out eye makeup remover to get going for the day. My powder shadows didn't crease either. The other thing I'm trying to figure out is how to blend shadows while using the primer. That primer really locks that powder in there and it's been difficult of me to blend, but I'd rather have eyeshadow that stays put than perfectly blended eyeshadow that's out the door four hours later.
Liked it BUT...
Let me start by saying I liked how the primer worked. Not as much as the wand application of Smashbox liquid lid primer (which was sold out, and why I tried this one instead). The primer is thick, and it is harder to control the amount that squeezes out of the tube. It would be hard to come out, then when it did, it was too much. Once on the lids, nice smooth application providing a good base. Now for the worst part: 1 week and barely into the tube, the entire seam of the tube opened up so that it will not squeeze out the top and forms a hard crust at the exposed seam= non-functional. I will have to throw away the tube and will not be re-purchasing.
I've been using this on my eyelids since I ordered it. I must say, I love it! It sets a clean plate for my eyeshadow and helps it last all day! Very happy with this Primer!
I have been using this for a week after using their foundation primer for a while and this definitely gets the job done. Like the foundation primer, it's lightweight and easy to apply. Would definitely recommend.
